Opinions about re-releasing World of Springfield figures were split fairly well down the middle. For a detailed view of your fellow collector's opinions, continue on...
|1) How long have you been collecting?|
|Since the start||63.8%|
|Less than 1 year||11.7%|
|2) What is the 'state' of your collection?|
|Everything I want||24.3%|
|Missing a few||28.5%|
|3) What type of collector are you?|
4) Playmates is considering a packaging change/update for 2003. Under the new packaging, they would re-release the original figures - same figure, same accessories, new package.
How do you believe this will effect the price of the original figures?
|Not at all||11.6%|
|More than usual||20.4%|
|Quite a bit||24.2%|
|5) Would you purchase the re-released figures?|
|6) How would you feel about the re-release of the figures under this scenario?|
|7) There are a couple other possible directions this idea could go. Playmates could release the same figures but add a new accessory or make a minor change, such as copyright date, to the figure. How do you feel about that?|
|Prefer same figure||25.6%|
|Prefer new accessory||23.2%|
|8) Another option is to use a collectors club to re-release the figures. Playmates could do something very simple, like poly-bagging the original figures and releasing them only through the club. How would you feel about that option?|
|9) Which of the options discussed above would you prefer (or no re-release at all)?|
|Same figure, new package||34.5%|
|New acc. or change figure||20.0%|
|Same figure, club release||15.1%|
|New acc. or change, club||8.0%|
|10) If the figures are re-released to traditional retailers, can they be part of a regular wave (one of the six figures), should they be part of a new series, or should the waves expand to seven figures each?|
|11) How would you feel about the classic figure being released in a regular wave, taking the place of a new sixth figure?|
These poll results were submitted to Playmates Toys, who will (of course) make the final decision regarding re-releases. Thank you for sharing your opinion!
We'd also like to thank SCS member Ozmodiar for providing us with some interesting crosstabbed statistical analysis of the results.
